Desert Domicile's Reader Survey Results

Welcome to our Houseiversary Celebration week! :D

We're going to kick things off with the results of my reader survey! Thanks to the 45 of you who took a few minutes of your time to take it! I really appreciated it and loved reading your comments :)

Question 1's answer:

It looks like most of you are newish readers that have been hanging out for about 3-6 months. Some of you have been reading for a little longer and some a little less but no matter how long it's been, I'm happy you're still reading :)

Question 2's answer:

I love that you guys read my new post every time it's posted! :)

Question 3's answer:

I don't know why but this answer kind of shocked me a little bit! Not in a bad way but in a kind of like a "there's a whole bunch of people reading that I have no idea about because they never say anything" way haha

It's ok if you don't feel like commenting all the time but feel free to chime in every once and a while - it's nice to know you're out there :)

Question 4's answer:

Perfect it is! For those of you who want more posts, I'm going to try my hardest to blog 4 days a week starting this week. I can't promise I won't miss a post here and there but I'll try my hardest not to!

Question 5's answer:

It looks like you guys love my DIY project posts the most with room makeovers coming in a close second followed by furniture makeovers! If I'm being honest, those are my favorite posts too so I'm happy you love them!

Question 6's answer:

Looks like gift guides are on their way out haha Sidenote: I should have included a "none of the above" option in this question (or made it optional) because I received a few comments that said you didn't have a least favorite post but the survey made you choose something anyway. That's my bad!

Question 7's answer:

It looks like most of you found my blog from another blog which is awesome! I'd love to know which blog you found me from if you don't mind sharing! I'll have no way of putting your survey responses together with any answer you give in the comments so share away!

Question 8's answer:

Checking my website everyday + being subscribed through a feed were tied in this answer! Always good to know how people are viewing my content so I can make any adjustments to the layout if needed.

Question 9's answer:

I don't have a pretty graph for this response since this answer was one where you essentially left a comment but some of the blogs you read are:

  • Young House Love
  • Bower Power
  • Little Green Notebook
  • Making It Lovely
  • Emily Henderson
  • Chris Loves Julia
  • A Beautiful Mess
  • Cape 27

and the list goes on! I read most of the same ones but I've added some new ones to my list like A Beautiful Mess and Cape 27.

Question 10's answer:

Out of all of the questions I asked, I was looking forward to your responses to this one the most and you guys didn't disappoint! It was great reading your comments! Not gonna lie, it gave my confidence a little bit of a boost and made me want to blog even more :)

As far as topics go, a few of you said that you'd like to see more styling posts. Some of you said that you'd like to see me work on my house more - picking paint colors, buying furniture, working outside, etc. Some of you asked for a house tour (coming this week!) and others asked for a few personal posts. Good news for you: I have 3 out of 4 of those posts in the works for next month and will include more posts in the future!

As far as comments go, you guys are so sweet! I'd love to personally thank each one of you but the survey was anonymous so I don't know who said what but just know that I read, loved and appreciated every single thing you said :)

Because you guys are so great and I'm so thankful for each and every one of you who stops by to see what I'm up to, I'll be hosting a giveaway tomorrow! Make sure you show up bright and early to enter!

  1. If you like A Beautiful Mess, which I LOVE, check out Skunkboy. I discovered Katie's blog a few months ago and can't get enough of her style (even though I am polar opposite in terms of style).

  2. Keep up the great work! I love reading your blog daily!

  3. I didn't get a chance to respond to your survey, but my answers would be right up there with everyone else's. ;-)

    I'm a reader from Gilbert, AZ, and the gal that asked about that restaurant you went to when hitting up the Ikea store. Really enjoy your blog and am excited to find someone with similar tastes right here in sunny AZ. Keep up the great work! Love your blog!

  4. You really are a master styler :) I adore your blog. Keep up your great work!
